ASHENDA

 

Ashenda, or Ashandye, is one of the great festivals which are unique for Lasta, Lalibela and, further north, Sekota and Tigray. The festival takes place in August to mark the ending of fasting called "filseta" (the time of the annunciation of the Virgin Mary).

It is an event most yearned for by girls. Young girls, dressed in beautiful traditional outfits, go from house to house in small groups singing and dancing.

The name of the festival comes from the name of a tall grass that the girls make into a skirt and wear it around their waist as decoration.
